The NY Times reports that Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, according to State Department officials. She may have violated federal requirements that officials' correspondence be retained as part of the agency's record.

Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act. "It is very difficult to conceive of a scenario — short of nuclear winter — where an agency would be justified in allowing its cabinet-level head officer to solely use a private email communications channel for the conduct of government business," said attorney Jason R. Baron. A spokesman for Clinton defended her use of the personal email account and said she has been complying with the "letter and spirit of the rules."

    Bingo! Extraordinary efforts made to give much greater control over the public record.

    I'm also thinking, how did everyone in the government not notice it was a personal email? Did she just not email anybody in the US government? This has me dumbfounded that it's not being asked more.

    The more you critically think about this, the more it sticks all on its own. Even if Bengazi is a smoke and mirrors this is extremely arrogant and should have every conspiracy theorist foaming at the mouth. It just STINKS of nefarious intentions.

    Don't settle for shampoo, demand real poo!
